The Hannah Jane was a two-masted topsail schooner, built at Pwllheli in 1867 and one of a large number of such vessels built for the coastal and slate trade in the mid 19th century. Owned by a consortium of local tradesmen and mariners, she was stranded near Hartlepool in November 1901 whilst bound from Sunderland to London with a cargo of bricks. Only one of her crew of five was saved.
